is they are betting that they'll have more political capital on their side in a few months after we get through the sequestration battle and a couple of other legislative things going on on capitol hill. on the surface, it does win where democrats are. >> i want to take a listen and we'll talk about it on the other side. here it is. >> it is reassuring to see republicans beginning to back off their threat to hold our economy hostage. that's senate leader harry reid there. house minority leader nancy pelosi rejected the plan. did the republicans make a real effort here or was this a gimmick as nancy pelosi said? >> the most important thing for republicans is they are re-ordering the three fiscal conflicts that the country has ahead. the three conflicts are are the sequestration and the deep cuts to domestic and military spending and the end of the funding of the government that could result in a govern shutdown and the sent ceiling fight and the debt ceiling fight has potentially the worst consequences for the economy. so the republicans thought instead of taking the debt ceiling fight first and
analysis i think what cory is doing is pretty smart. he is placing a bet that frank is not going to run again and he is trying to position himself at the head of the line for anybody else who might aspire to replace frank. and so this is not a game for wall flowers or folks who are -- at the end of the day it is a pretty darwinian game. >> listen to this. this is what booker said in that wnbc interview. >> as frustrated as i was with him for taking time to evolve, as he said, it was a glorious thing to see the first president of the united states stand up and affirm equality. >> talking about same sex marriage and marriage equality. should republicans reconsider their stance on issues such as same sex marriage? >> i don't think so. earlier today colin powell talked about the dark vein of intolerance. that plays both ways when you have folks on the left who will take a defense of traditional marriage as being an act of bigotry. i think we need to grow up and play this out in the public arena and in the legislate chb bodies of the country. >> the president's comments made before the elect
to say about that on mark. >> is he liberal? you bet. he will offer the president his advice but i guarantee you, he's a great soldier, jack lew will march forward. >> jared, as a person who has a reputation does that make him kryptonite to the gop and make him tone-deaf? >> he's not all that liberal. i would argue he's hawkish on the budget deficit. i think his track record, again, involves protecting programs that are important to economically vulnerable people. i don't think that makes you particularly liberal. the thing about jack lew not getting along with the gop has been because of with capitol hill. he's quite well liked up. i actually don't think he'll have a big problem getting confirmed. >> as an insider, what is your ideas, the controversy, alleged controversy, or lack thereof of the cabinet nominations? >> you know, i think it's relevant. i think that your cabinet doesn't have to exactly reflect your population. but it should come as close as you can. and you know, you don't have to be quota like about it. but there really is something that people of different gender a

-- you don't want to bet your house on the outcome. but i would say that the likelihood is that they are not going to be able to get an assault weapons ban through this congress. >> instead of dividing ourselves as a country along partisan lines let's come back to what is most pragmatic, what will keep people safe in america. >> all right. so let's dig right in. joining me now we have joining me msnbc's reverend al sharpton, ed shultz and peter alexander. peter, i want to start with you because we have heard that the president will be leading off the press conference focusing on the debt ceiling. what more do we know about how long that opening statement is going to be? >> we only know it's going to be some brief remarks from the president to kick off this news conference that will be notedly, thomas, the last news conference of his first term as president. but it's notable because it's the very same topic that you can expect he had to focus on the last couple of years he will focused on the next zell several months or years as he continues to battle with congress in ter
they want to give to their country. >> senator, real quickly, you made a super bowl bet. i want to break some news here. you made a super bowl bet with maryland senators, so if the ravens use, they'll hand over maryland crab cakes, beers, and cookies, and if the 49ers lose, you'll send over some crab, napa valley wine, san fran bread, and cheeses. apparently right now you have the odds. so do you have a message for the folks in maryland? >> well, i love the folks of maryland, but i have to say, get ready to be crabby. because we're going to make it. >> i don't know. with all due respect, i'm from baltimore, and you guys are going down. >> oh, no. >> and you will enjoy those burger cookies. you will enjoy those burger cookies, trust me. >> the ravens will fly away. >> we shall see. but i think i should just personally send you some burg r ier cookies, anyway. you should want to lose. they're really good. trust me. >> i'll send you sour doug bread. >>> the 113th congress has a lot to do on their list over the next few months. immigration reform as well as gun violence. but can they take c

[bang, crackling...] >> announcer: are you ready to spend the next 60 days of your life to getting in the best shape of your life? >> i saw it and after about the 10th time, i said, "you know what? i gotta do it." i knew that this was gonna change my life forever. >> announcer: insanity is the hardest workout ever put on dvd, but it's the only one that will give you a year's worth of results in only 60 days. insanity starts with month 1. five max interval workouts: plyo, resistance, cardio, abs and recovery. and just when you think you're fit, you'll start month 2. you'll dig even deeper with four new workouts that will leave you face down in a puddle of sweat. plus you get the insanity wall calendar, the fitness guide, elite nutrition, and get free online support from shaun t. and thousands of insaniacs like you starting the insanity challenge every day. order now and you can try insanity for just three payments of only $39.95. that's right, you get this, for only three payments of $39.95,
in the blanks? >> this issue is very close to the president's heart. so my bet and my money would be on a bold proposal of the white house. of course, there are negotiations and that's part of the process, and if you peel off what matt was saying and if one of the more interesting statistics was the fact that 65% of people who were polled in this election felt that undocumented workers should have a path to citizenship. so this is an issue where the will of the american people will be behind a reform package and in the president's heart he would like to do something big. >> you will see the president out there pushing this thing using those campaign-style events that he's become such a fan of. let's move to gun control now. i want to continue to talk about this because one of the things that continues to happen is something tragic happens and after a month or two we all move on to something else, now in regard to this, in the wake of the tragic shootings in newtown, we've seen republican lawmakers saying they're willing to re-evaluate the nation's gun laws and they include marco rubio, chuck g
's reckless bets nearly crashed our entire economy. taxpayers across this country saved aig from ruin and it would be outrageous for this company to turn around and sue the federal government because they think the deal wasn't generous enough." so explain to all of us the thinking behind aig and why they would do this, the motivation? >> well, i think i can do that. first of all, one thing that hasn't been said so far in the discussion is the word "voluntary." aig did not have to take the bailout that was offered to them by the federal government. they could have refused it. it would have meant certain bankruptcy. so let's not forget this was a volunta voluntary agreement. nobody forced them to take the bailout. look, the only reason for the aig board to consider joining thus lawsuit is because they actually might be liable if the shareholders proceed with the suit, win the suit, they could again accuse the board of not seriously considering the suit. and so they're are corporate government issues there. my belief is that the board feels it has to do this and that they'll quickly say,
on everyone, they would have gotten the blame. from his perspective, that was a bad political bet. so they're now focused on the big fights coming, the debt crisis, the continuing resolution. the problem with that is they think they have leverage and i'm not sure they do because, again, the consequences of making that again such a political battle -- >> jim, talk to that. why do you guys have leverage? a lot of republicans on capitol hill say, look, we should too much blood on this tax fight but we are more than happy to bring the president to his knees over these budget wars in the next 60 to 90 days. explain why you guys have such good leverage. >> i think the leverage is pretty simple. we've given the president his tax increases on the rich. the rich people are saying more or however the president wants to say it. so that part is off the table. now we get to concentrate on the spending. this president has run trillion dollar deficits every single year and he's had no interest in trying to slow those down. i think over the next 60 days for republicans to win this battle, they're going to

, but late, delayed, yes, but was it done, you bet your life. >> new york congressman charlie rangel. thanks for your time. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> so the final outstanding issue involving president obama's inauguration next monday is now apparently resolved. the reverend luis leone confirms he will be delivering the benediction. he pastors the church that the president and his family attends most frequently. he replaces the atlanta pastor who bowed out last week after a controversy erupted over his anti-gay sermon that he delivered back in the 1990s. so as the final preparations move forward for monday's inauguration in full swing, i'm joined by kerry brown, white house reporter for politico, to talk about the final touches. is the inaugural committee bracing for any more pitfalls in the final days or does it look like smooth sailing ahead? >> i'm sure they're preparing for it because really, anything can happen. this is a huge event even though it's expected to be smaller than it was four years ago. they are still expecting almost a million people, 40,000 people are expected to
on thursday, when the new congress is sworn in. you know, i'm betting it will go through because even though there are members on the left and the right that don't like this, move on said that they did not like the bill, there's going to be enough members to have a bipartisan roll call, a rare thing in the house, if, if -- >> and does the house want to be seen as the ones who scuttled middle class tax cuts? >> some in the house do, yes. there are a lot of house republicans who are morally opposed to tax increases, and i think some of them will not agree to any kind of compromise like this, as it essentially is a tax increase, and some democrats didn't like how the deal was constructed, either, but i don't think the overall house will let this go. i think you'll find 118 reluctant votes in the house. a lot of house members don't like the details. many democrats didn't love all the details, but they're going to -- president obama has signed on to the deal, so that's going to push a lot of democrats over the line and they'll get enough votes today to get this passed. >> all right, let's say thi
and it's that important. the iran issue is simply that important, but again, if i were a betting man, i would say that he'll be confirmed, that he'll satisfy the questions that have been raised, but that fate is very much in senator hagel's hands as well as in senator schumer's. >> the hearings will tell the tale. >> thanks for your time. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> bill clinton is in haiti today. we'll take you live to the island nation still devastated from the aftermath of the earthquake three years later. >>> president obama facing backlash in the cabinet resignations and the new picks out there. is the white house diverse enough is the big question. you're watching msnbc, the place for politics. most people tend to think more about how they brush than what they brush with. until i show them this. the oral-b pro-health clinical brush. its pro-flex sides adjust to teeth and gums for a better clean. the pro-health clinical brush from oral-b. olaf gets great rewards for his small business! pizza!

of the highest approval ratings in the obama administration, and people are taking bets far and wide about whether or not she's going to come back for that white house run. >> thomas, there's no doubt that after the secretary takes some time off and decides whether or not she wants to reoh merge in a more political capacity, the fact is that her legacy is far greater than benghazi. i mean, after all, four years of her traveling around the world resolving many an issue, she has reinstalled the art of diplomacy back in the state department. there's no doubt that when you look at the four corners over four years benghazi, while it clearly was just a terrible incidents to occur on her watch, the fact is when you put that in the context of her -- a legacy of great achievement as a secretary of state i'm quite convinced that the secretary, if she decides, whatever she decides to do, benghazi may be a bremish, but in the context of that great record it will just be a small part of it. >> ambassador mark beginsberg, great to see you today. >> good to be where you. >> that's going to wrap things up

in place? lastly if there is an all out rejection all bets are off, we're jumping over the fiscal cliff. it is up to john boehner to gauge how his conference is going to react to this bill and from folks i've talked to there is a little bit of nervousness among house republican leaders. they have been left at altar many times by their conservative flank. real quickly back last year in 2011 the senate passed the payroll tax cut extension 89-11. very similar to what we saw the vote was earlier this morning. that was then defeated in the house of representatives a few days later. not saying we can see history repeat itself, but it has happened before, mara. >> all right. nbc's luke russert, thank you and happy new year, my friend. >> take care. be well. >> all right. >>> house and senate leaders are using every last second to try to sell their membership on this deal, something even president obama commented upon himself on monday. >> one thing we can count on with respect to this congress is that if there is even one second left before you have to do what you're supposed to do, they will

the president is going to get everything done that he wants to in 2013 but i would bet on immigration reform. maybe that's crazy and you'll have me back here and i'll have to say no i was wrong. i do think it's so much in republicans' self-interest. they've got some really good spokesmen on that score like marco rubio that some movement may be seen there all right. thank you for that prediction. thank you both for joining me. >> thank you. >>> coming up in just one hour from now the house gets back to work. but what if anything will be accomplished? congresswoman debby wassermann shulz joins us at the top of the hour. i gave birth to my daughter on may 18th, five days later, i had a massive heart attack. bayer aspirin was the first thing the emts gave me. now, i'm on a bayer aspirin regimen.
